Let it Be Said of Us

One of the songs we have been singing in worship is entitled “Let it Be Said of Us”. Reflect on these words below and use these lyrics as a prayer for your life and our church.


Let it be said of us that the Lord was our passion,hymnal
That with gladness we bore every cross we were given;
That we fought the good fight, that we finished our course
Knowing within us the power of the risen Lord.

Let the cross be our glory and the Lord be our song;
By mercy made holy, by the Spirit made strong.
Let the cross be our glory and the Lord be our song.
‘Till the likeness of Jesus be through us made known.
Let the cross be our glory and the Lord be our song.


“Let it be said of us that the Lord was our passion.”

Do you desire to know the Lord? reflect upon Psalm 63:1- “O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.’

“That with gladness we bore every cross we were given;”

Have you dealt with conflict and affliction like the apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 1:21- “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” ?

“That we fought the good fight, that we finished our course.”

Read 1 Timothy 6:12. ” Fight the good fight to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” Remember your call to preach the gospel and pray that you are faithful to that end.

“Knowing within us the power of the risen Lord.”

Read Philippians 3:7-10 “But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,”

Remember that all things fail in comparison to knowing Christ.

( All words of “Let it be Said of Us” is from the 2008 Baptist hymnal, Words printed with permission CCLI #92402.)
